About the property

4 Bedroom Lakefront Cottage with Gorgeous Views

Enjoy a secluded cottage property on the north channel of Lake Huron. A heavenly spot! This peaceful and unique lakefront island setting allows you to unplug and relax. Swimming canoeing, fishing, boating and sailing are favorite ways to pass the days.

There is a walking trail through the fragrant woods to Lost Lake in the center of the island. There, you will find a small lake surrounded by a pristine bog with Tamarack and Pitcher plants.

Sail, canoe or use your own boat to explore many nearby islands or take a day trip to nearby historic St Joseph Island. After your activities, read a book in a comfy chair on the deck overlooking a quiet bay inhabited by only wildlife - hummingbirds, loons, bald eagles, osprey, mink and deer.

Autumn colors are breathtakingly beautiful here, too. The cabins have baseboard heat and a fireplace.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and myself, a group of 6 people, recently stayed at the above Cottage, and we had a great time! The listing posted to this website is accurate, with all the amenities and features stated. The Canoe and Sunfish Boat provided were the highlight of the trip, with daily trips out onto the water, exploring the Island. We also very much enjoyed the Hiking trail, marked out by the owner, to the center of the Island, which had an incredible little lake in the middle, surrounded by a variety of plants and wildlife. We also had a great time sitting out on the private dock, fishing, sunbathing and swimming.

The Main Cabin was very comfortable, clean, spacious and airy, and had all the things that you would need for a stay away! The kitchen was stocked with all the tools, cutlery and assorted utensils needed, which was very convenient. The Sleeping Cabin was a few steps away from the Main Cabin, with two bedrooms and a joined bathroom. This was also very comfortable and clean!

The owner and her family were very accommodating and friendly, and answered all our questions and inquiries and were very helpful. They are such nice people, which helps makes the experience even better! I would definitely recommend this property to people interested in a relaxing, "get away from it all", and peaceful vacation away.
